    Saudi Arabia has threatened to prop up President Mubarak if the White House tries to force a swift change of regime in Egypt. In a testy personal telephone call on January 29, King Abdullah told President Obama not to humiliate Mr Mubarak and warned that he would step in to bankroll Egypt if the US withdrew its aid programme, worth $1.5 billion annually. America’s closest ally in the Gulf made clear that the Egyptian President must be allowed to stay on to oversee the transition towards peaceful democracy and then leave with dignity. “Mubarak and King Abdullah are not just allies, they are close friends, and the King is not about to see his friend cast aside and humiliated,” a senior source in the Saudi capital told The Times. Two sources confirmed details of the King’s call, made four days after the people of Egypt took to the streets.

    Over rumor by anonymous sources? Not at all.

    It takes decades to put in place what we have, and there's still only about a 10 percent chance it will take root. (in that part of the world, probably 1 percent or less of a chance)
    It was harder to get around in the late 1700's, but I imagine we managed to get the congress in one room and hammer out how to open the place for business fairly quickly. The Iraqi congress is so divided, half of the elected officials have refused to even step into the room with the other half. There is not only a lack of desire to actually, you know, govern the country, there's organized obstructionism to keep governing the country from even happening. That's not on the US; it's on the Iraqis. And it's something that the US can't fix no matter how long we stay there.

The US sure as hell couldn't do it. The criminal element took over as soon as the occupation began, and literally sacked what was left of their country while our esteemed Pentagon officials scratched their collective heads and said, "Wow, didn't see that coming." Really? Didn't see riots in the streets as a result of disbanding all military and law enforcement in the country?

    And we actually PAY these boobs to make military decisions and plan wars?? Arghhhhhhh
